Is Australian cricket casting its net wide enough?

In today's Age Peter Roebuck has a thoughtful piece about what he sees as Australian cricket's failure to cast its net wide enough to encourage players from non-Anglo-Saxon backgrounds to become involved in the game.

It's unfortunate that his article appears the day after ethnic tensions at the Australian open tennis, produced comments in the media such as this. Nevertheless he makes some good points. One them is a reference toAdil Rashid, a promising young Yorkshire leg spinner of Asian descent (Roebuck doesn't name him, but other people have told me about his talent.)
